Default Internet Commerce Success Story

Alan Meckler has a really good blog post about an artist that set up an online greeting card site and has found great success. Meckler references an article at the Wall Street Journal that I can't find so I'll quote him:

"For those who will not read the article let me summarize: A British artist named Jacquie Lawson has created an incredibly successful online greeting card company. Some metrics: two employees, no marketing costs, revenues approaching $5 million, tiny inventory of 500 greeting cards, and an $8.00 per annum subscription price!

"The success of jacquielawson.com is just one of thousands of ecommerce gems that few of us ever learn about."

Default Stylized Greeting Cards Draw a Loyal Following

The Wall Street Journal has made the article about Jacquie Lawson available on Startup Journal:

Edit: The Journal removed their article but I found it at the author's site:
